Mindful : February 2014
8 mindful February 2014 Susan Bauer-Wu In this issue, Susan Bauer-Wu, PhD, RN, guides us through a body-scan medi- tation (page 66). The author of Leaves Falling Gently: Living Fully with Serious & Life-Limiting Illness says, “Mindfulness is not a quick fix for all that ails you. It takes being open and letting go of our usual achievement-driven focus.” Bauer-Wu is a professor at the University of Virginia School of Nursing and director of the school’s Compassionate Care Initiative. Dustin Aksland Most of photographer Dustin Aksland’s commissioned work is por traiture, which made him an ideal candidate for capturing anti-bullying crusaders Laura Bakosh and Janice Houlihan in our Now section (page 11). “I try to keep it honest, not make it overly dramatic,” he says. “Just straight photography.” Aksland photographed Bakosh and Houlihan in a playground, since their mission is helping children play well together. Jennifer Campbell Reporter Jennifer Campbell wrote about the Harley School Hospice program in Rochester, New York (page 42), which pairs high school students with people in palliative care. “ When the students were in class, they thoughtfully evaluated their experiences and came to interesting con- clusions,” she says. “Half of me felt they were ver y special young people, and half of me felt they were typical teenagers. I hope the stor y demonstrates that they are both.” Tracy Picha Tracy Picha, who writes about dancing tango (page 60), began studying the Argentine style of the dance eight years ago. Since then her red shoes have slid along dance floors in Istanbul, Abu Dhabi, Buenos Aires, and Los Angeles, to name a few hot spots. “It’s kind of a biofeedback system,” she says. “If I let random thoughts distract me while I’m dancing tango with someone, I can feel it fall apar t. Same in life: If you’re all there, it works better.” Alessandro Gottardo Alessandro Gottardo, aka Shout, is a designer and illustrator who works from his studio in Milan. His work has appeared in publications such as Time, Wired, Esquire, and National Geographic. For Mindful he creates the Ms. Mindful illus- tration (page 68). “The idea comes first, always,” he says. “The sketch stage is the most impor tant thing. There cannot be too many details—it’s about appreciating the initial concept.” Janice Marturano Founder and executive director of The Institute for Mindful Leadership, Janice Mar turano brings leadership knowl- edge from her years as vice president and deputy general counsel at General Mills. “Mindful leadership helps us create space in our lives so we can make clearer choices and embody compassion.” Read an excerpt from her new book, Finding the Space to Lead: A Practical Guide to Mind- ful Leadership (page 52). contributors Illustrations by Jessica McCar thy and Alessandro Got tardo (self-por trait)
